Dodgers: Series Preview of Mile High NL West Showdown
Game Two: Walker Buehler (6-4, 2.92 ERA) Vs. Kyle Freeland (13-7, 2.96 ERA)
After the Dodgers send their current ace to the mound Friday, they will send their ace of the future to the mound on Saturday. Walker Buehler will oppose Kyle Freeland who has quietly been one of the better pitchers in the game this season. Buehler departed his last start with a foot ailment but after negative x-rays, Buehler will be able to start on Saturday.
This game will be a rematch of the August 11th game in which Buehler got the better of Freeland pitching seven shutout innings and struck out six. Buehler did have to settle for the no-decision however as the bullpen blew the lead. In that game, Freeland tossed seven innings of two-run ball while striking out ten Dodger batters. This is the best matchup of the series and must-see TV for any baseball fan.
